  • Excellent stay!

    "I couldn't have been happier with the accommodations with this condo. It was as described, better even. The location was ideal and the space was clean and very inviting upon arrival. Once we parked the car it didn't move until we departed on Sunday. It was everything you could ask for when going to Charleston for a long weekend. I plan on staying here again, if available."

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "We had a wonderful time staying at this home. It was really nice to have coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon outside on the patio watching the horse carriages go by. We took the owners advice and did one of the home/garden tours to get a feel of the history of Charleston. Everything was clean and the house gave us a feeling of being welcome. When I could not figure out how to use the coffee maker, India, the owner was on the phone with me in 10 minutes. It all worked out well and we would love to return some day. Our stay here was so much better than a hotel."

  • Great place, great location

    "Our expectations were exceeded with this fine townhouse. We couldn't have found a better place to get away. We wouldn't have been this comfortable in a hotel, for sure. The car got a her own vacation, since everything was so close. We walked down to the Battery, up to Liberty Park (to catch a ride to Fort Sumter), and everywhere in between. We definitely needed to walk off all the great food the city has to offer. After reading the comments about Pam, part of me hoped to meet her. But with the ease of booking and the quality of the house, it's easy to see why it wasn't necessary. All of the comments below (less one) were spot on. By the way, we found a piece of artwork from the house at the Market. The wife bought it for us to remember the house. It was hanging in our dining room before she unpacked."
